Enter them and often win.
Was what I was getting at. And yes, they do.
luckily there is always someone better at it who can point out the mistakes
Currently Cumberland Bar in Edinburgh, last night we won again.
I think that DIS could make a pubquiz champion team, maybe
sorry MrSteveBob, I'll keep you in mind as reserve.
which is why I like the cumberland bar's one, as it is free, so there is no incentive to use such devices.
no use of mobile devices here, as long as you go to the right place and folks are there just for the fun of being at a pub quiz, drinking and chatting to mates, and there's no hustlers there, you're generally alright. (quiz i've been to recently gets round this by having a round where you have to "create" some kind of artwork based on a theme using tin foil and such. it's a bit naff but oddly fun and yeah, it gets round the hustlers)
olive oil round? fucking hell.
olive oil round?
tin foil art? jesus.
win say a third or a quarter of the time I reckon.
Quizzing pub is the Crown in bethnal green but looking for pastures new in the future.
mobile devices are for teh gays. Though once there was a question about how many leaves there were on a shamrock. We scratch our heads for a bit before realising that on the chalkboard advertising for paddy's day the bar staff had drawn a shamrock on it :)
Have only won once.
And they bring out the absolute worst in some people.
Had a pretty good winning streak at the Lexington in the last few months (came 3rd last week though). Need a trip to Rough Trade to spend the vouchers.
There are two we go to - one really hard one and one easier one - but I'm not saying where they are in case you jerks all turn up and win. We never win. Came second last week though.
Used to go almost every week. Never won. Came second once. There are a couple of pretty well clued up regular teams. Two for one pizzas. Half the team moved out of town, though.
Tough round: Non-footballer picture rounds.
Hoping for: 90s music and banality.
hustle the n00bs
We rarely won.
Occasionally do one now with colleagues. We occasionally win.
I fucking love them. I'm the person who takes them far too seriously and sulks massively. THIS IS MY SPORT.
to his one.
When the quizmaster said it and i was right I properly puffed out my cheeks and shook my head at him.
A pub called The Mothers' Ruin, have a pretty high success rate. Specialist subjects are TV & Film and the music intros round.
Usually do terribly because I know fuck all about film and Americana.
the Spoons quiz is okay. Won that twice I think. Last time I did one at the Abbott Cook, won £122 between 6 of us, not bad. The team is mostly people from work. Good times.
Absolutely NO mobile devices.
We are on a hat-trick.
go to a film one every 2 weeks aswell, we usually come 9th out of 17.
we're kids though
